Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

Average MLB height is a little over 6'1". Lawrie is listed as 6'0".


Interesting how the chart apparently does it the reverse-image from what the TV viewer sees. Charts them from the ump's perspective. Makes it confusing for the fans imo.

Last pitch was moving and was decently framed by catcher. Was able to steal that strike imo....and the fact that Lawrie had badly shown up the ump on the previous call didn't help him either.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

so basically, brian is up +8.39 (which amazingly is only .39 higher than when the bet started) with the rays pick tonight (they're up 2-1 in the 7th) pending and only 1 more pick for 150.

this is basically a lock, did anyone escrow poogs? if so, this should be wrapped up after the next pick, right?

you're welcome, though I think there's one more bet to be made?

I guess so...Brian almost +10 units
I guess you can count the first play he sends you towards the 150 bets

So now that this little forum wager is behind us, what did everyone learn from the BrianL experience?

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

why did the nyy/tor line move only 2 cents after it was announced that alex rodriguez was not playing today? is he just not that much of a factor, or was everybody anticipating that he was going to get the day off anyway?

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

final brianl stats: 79-68-3 +7.32

negotiating whether or not that first 8 units before the bet started ended up being everything.

Slacking? Not really.... Unlucky? VERY.

6.5 Unit Swing on this game: http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?...cago-white-sox

Had White Sox ML for 3 Units... up 6-0 going into the 6th before a ridiculous meltdown.


Another 7 Unit swing on this game: http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?...ouis-cardinals

Cardinals left a runner on 3rd in a tie game in the 9th, 10th and 11th innings....


5.5 Unit swing on this game: http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?...sburgh-pirates

Had under 7.5... 2-2 going into the bottom of 8th and 2 of the worst offenses in the league combine for 5 runs & 2 home runs in 1.5 innings... including 2 blown saves.




Good ole' variance.... But I obviously expected it, as an initial downswing I think goes hand in hand with first starting to go tout.

Re: April - June LC Thread: Good old country hardball

i don't want to pile on, as i said i think you're a pretty good person...

but how do those newsletters goes after day after day of losses? like what do teh subscribers say?

that's gotta be awkward. and you've already alluded to that in one of our conversations ---the pressure to be good.

how's all that going now? i seriously interested.

Derp derp but now you are one, this is what you strove for. Lol that you don't want to do tout like things.

GL attracting clientele w/ no writeups, it's esp glaring considering the format of the site implies ... writeups

I like how Sharky's site includes all the plays before he went tout in his record.
